[my management style] is about hiring well, hiring the right people who are insatiably curious, who understand the role they play in the organization, and that it’s up to them for us to accomplish big things.
Welcome to the the 97th Floor Mastermind Interview Series where each week we sit down with one of the makers, thought leaders, and visionaries behind the biggest and/or up-and-coming brands around. We talk about everything from business and marketplace insights to personal journeys and successes, to failures and legacy.
In this episode we’re talking to Grow Chief Marketing Officer Mike Ward about how to turn data into a story — one that inspires action. Together we explore connections between data, customer centricity, and marketing, and delve into why data without accessibility is useless.
